It’s Dallas week and there is no game more important than Eagles vs Cowboys.
So this week we're going to do something a little different.
I am going to breakdown the showdown in Jerry World between my beloved Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys from a fantasy perspective.
Don’t worry, at the bottom I also posted some value plays for daily sites included with my studs & Sleepers!
QB: Carson Wentz
Edge goes to Carson J. Wentz over Dak for Sunday night’s ball game. I honestly think we haven’t even seen the best of #11 yet and he’s only in year two. With that being said I still think Dak is a very good QB, but as you saw last week without Zeke, and a missing piece in the O-line, Dak just didn’t look comfortable. I can't see him being any more comfortable this week with Cox & Company terrorizing that Dallas front and stuffing the run game.
Looking for one of Carson's best fantasy performances to happen this Sunday!
I’m including both of them here because I think it is still going to be somewhat of a committee, but that doesn’t mean I’d shy away from starting either one of these guys in Fantasy. I’m leaning towards Ajayi for some explosive runs in this one. I think the Eagles and the fans want to see the Jay Train start rolling, but don’t sleep on Blount.
RB: Morris/ Smith
I really don’t see a productive day for Dallas on the ground. I would lean Rod Smith for the better production because of his pass catching ability and I could see him being used in a lot of 2-back sets, and as a check down option for Dak.
WR: Dez Bryant
Look I honestly don’t like this guy but the cat can ball. He’s a possession receiver and Weapon X deserves respect if he’s on the field.
However, for any Cowboys fans reading this article I got news for you- Dez gets shut down, and that’s the bottom line because STONE COLD SAID SO!!
WR: Nelson Agholor
The Cowboys secondary allows the 6th most fantasy points to opposing receivers this season. With Alshon Jeffery dealing with an ankle issue, Nelsons stock for this week is rising. Even if Alshon does suit up, I still like Agholor in this juicy match-up.
TE: Zach Ertz
I’ve been riding Zach Ertz all year and statistically he’s been having the best year of his career. The chemistry between him and Carson is unreal. With no Sean Lee, the middle of the field she be a playground for Ertz. I think he could have one of his best games of the season on Sunday night.
The Atlanta Falcons had 8 sacks last week, 8!!! I mean I’m not trying to say Atlanta’s D-Line is ass but when you want to compare apples to apples they’re not even in the same conversation as the Birds D-Line.
The Birds D is clicking right now and if they smell blood in the water early, it’s going to be a long game for the Cowboys.
Kicker: Jake Elliot
If Mike Nugent & Jake the Snake had a pregame hang off at the 50 yard line this game would be cancelled and the Birds wouldn’t even have to get off the bus.
There is nothing more to be said.
Guys who could make a difference
Cole Beasley: I hate this rat, but for some reason he always kills the Eagles I could see him being a sneaky play this week.
Terrence Williams: Stretches the field, and if the Cowboys go down early which I’m expecting Dak might just start throwing the ball with his eyes closed down field. Williams is fast enough to catch up to it.
Old man Witten: Future HOF you think I’m going to disrespect him and his blue forearm sleeves? No shot, Witten is the ultimate safety blanket and could be one of the only trusty targets for Dak this week.
Mack Hollins: I need more Maction. He’s caught basically every ball thrown at him and if Jeffery can’t go he could be a sneaky option for Carson.
Torrey Smith: I was raggin' on him earlier in the season but he’s a veteran that will find his spots. Same as above if Jeffery is out, I think Torrey could have a rare game and put up some points.
Trey Burton: I think this is the Zach Ertz show Sunday night, but I have a feeling the Eagles are going to show what looks like a designed run by the goal line and Trey slips out for a TD.
It’s a bold guess, but I’m smelling something sneaky from 88 that is going to piss off Ertz owners in fantasy, but make Birds fans very happy.
STUDS across the League
QB: Derek Carr in Mexico City vs the Pats. He should have a big day.
RB: Kareem Hunt @ the NY Stinkin’ Giants. Andy off of a bye, he goes bananas!
RB: Jerrick Mckinnon vs the Rams. He will be used heavily this week.
WR: Julio Jones @ Seattle Apparently Byron Maxwell is going to try and cover him. LOL
WR: Mike Evans @ Miami. Fitzpatrick should feed him all day.
TE: Travis Kelce. Giants have let a TE score in every single game, doesn’t stop Sunday.
D: Jags @ the BROWNS. I don’t think I need an explanation
QB: Kirk Cousins
RB: Chris Thompson
RB: Jamaal Williams
WR: Amari Cooper: Hey last time I told everyone to get on Amari he set the world on fire, do IT
WR: Jarvis Landry
TE: Mercedes Lewis
D: sneaky D play could be the Pack at home vs the Ravens.
